Nearly Ripe Almonds

Almond Flour: Don’t Let Any of Your Almond Milk Recipe Go To Waste!

on March 6 | in Cooking, Nutrition, Nuts, Recipes | by | with Comments Off

As promised we have a follow up for from last month’s Refreshing Almond Milk Recipe

We left off with a delicious 1 quart container of almond milk in your fridge and a small amount of almond solids in your strainer. Wondering what to do now? Well as we said, you can go ahead and discard those, or you can make homemade almond meal.

Almond Meal, also known as Almond Flour, is made from almonds (duh!) and adds a nutty taste and moistness to your cooking and baking. It’s great for breading or baking (a perfect flour alternative for those of you who celebrate Passover)! So how do you make this super food flour? Check out our step by step guide:

Almond FlourHARDWARE:

  • Mesh Sheet
  • Baking Sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Food Processor
  • Container to fit about half a cup of almond flour

INGREDIENTS:

  • Left over almond solids from Almond Milk Recipe

DIRECTIONS:

  • After completing the recipe and steps for your refreshing almond milk, turn your oven onto the lowest heat setting
  • Place your almond solids onto a mesh sheet for about half an hour and allow the remaining liquid to drain
  • Once the liquid has completely drained, transfer the almond solids to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or onto a silicone baking sheet
  • Take your rubber spatula and spread the almond solids onto your baking sheet in a very thin layer
  • Place in oven and allow to dehydrate for a few hours (you can keep them in the oven overnight if you wish) until they form a dry sheet
  • Break up the dehydrated sheet and place pieces into your food processor
  • Process for 1-2 minutes
  • Transfer to your container and use as a nutty flour alternative

* This recipe will make about half a cup of almond meal
